Sneak Peek: Yet Still We Forge On

"What makes the show fun is inextricably bound with the bad behavior of Chuck, Axe, and most of the rest. It’s a fine line between characters you love to hate and ones you despise so much you’d like to see them removed from your television immediately, and A Proper Sendoff is designed to push against that line without quite crossing over it."

"It’s the day of Jack Foley’s funeral here on Billions, which thankfully doesn’t mean it’s a somber day. Billions doesn’t do somber. Instead, the day sees more power moves, more backstabbing, and more personal reckoning."

"This week on Billions, revenge is the order of the day. All right, fine: Every week on Billions, revenge is the order of the day. But this episode is special even so. Written by Michael Russell Gunn and directed with gangster-movie brio by Matthew McLoota, the episode has Axe and Chuck conduct some of their most brutally total takedowns of their enemies yet."
